    Democratic Leaders must be very clear they stand with the working class of our country. Democrats must hold the line in demanding that deficit reduction is done fairly -- not on the backs of the elderly, the sick, children and the poor.

      and is a blood relative to the ex-husband is "reported" (not seen on camera) as saying that Nancy Lanza was a survivalist.

      Uh-huh. She's a reliable source. Sure.

      I'm going t wait for the official report from the police to come out before I believe any of the rumors mongered by the irresponsible media at this time.

      •  The fact that she stockpiled weapons and ammo (1+ / 0-)

        and took her kids to the shooting range regularly, including one that had obvious mental illness, doesn't paint a very flattering picture of her either.

        The killer had a large cache of very dangerous weapons and ammo that he took with him to do his dirty deed.  He had been trained by his mother in how to shoot those weapons.  

        Enough said.

        •  I agree: "Enough said" (0+ / 0-)

          But not in the way that you mean.  

          I've seen enough rumor mongering from the media.  I am certainly not going to pay any heed to the gossiping of people who have an ax to grind one way or the other.

          •  That's your decision (0+ / 0-)

            Everything I've stated so far is documented.  I'm fairly reality based and not afraid to face reality about these problems.

            •  Your "reality" is based on media gossip. (0+ / 0-)

              That you leap to conclusions at early and conflicting reports casts a very unflattering picture on you IMHO.  

              "Documented"?  RTFLMAO!

              But you are not alone.  My FB feed as well as a not insignificant population of dKos is replete with a feeding frenzy savoring all the details and making snap judgments.  Thankfully, those who are wiser refrain from ugly speculation at this point.
